Fishing Reports

Listed below are the Mid-Week Amazon Fishing Reports (only 2 1/2 days). They are rushed by e-mail to our agents every Tuesday night, in order that our weekend incoming guests may be duly informed before departure.

Please note, these are true weights … sometimes in the Amazon the 17-19 lbs4. class are considered 20 lbs. trophies…

Mid-Week Fishing Report: November 12 - 14, 2016. (2 1/2 days)

Mid-Week Fishing Report:  November 12 - 14, 2016.  (2 1/2 days)

18 anglers fishing last week in Dry-Zone NWest finished the week with 1.866 landed peacocks with a good size mix, the largest ones weighing over 17lbs.. (Note: a glitch with our satellite communication with the camps prevented us from issuing last week´s partial report)

Last Saturday Fly-in Floating Cabins II, stationed now at the lower Itapara Dry-Zone NEast received a jolly group of 7 Dutch anglers to break waters in this private fishery this Season. With an initial 155 landed peacocks, camp host reports that they are thoroughly enjoying the whole experience. Water levels in this fishery are a bit above the mean and descending.

The two groups (15 anglers) fishing at the mid and upper Jufaris, had a  moderate start with 440 landed peacocks with a good size mix but no trophies to show up to now. Water levels are a bit high but stable, expecting to start descending in the coming days. Similar conditions and results for the group fishing at the Xeruini private fishery.

Best reported performing lures this week are Joao-Pepino, perversas, propellers, and jigs. Other species caught were: barracudas, cará, traira, bicuda, aruaná, peixe-cachorro, piranha.

WATER LEVEL FORECAST – (AMAZON BASIN 4 DRY REGIONS)

 

Dry-Zone N.West  RIVERS: JUFARI, XERUINI (see map at the top). Jufari and Xeruini rivers water levels continue to be a bit too high and descending, but, are very fishable for peacock bass. Last weekend anglers endured some rain episodes at the Jufari, forecast for Barcelos (se below) show that although some tropical thunderstorms will be present, rainfall with not be an issue.

 

LAST WEEK 

 

NEXT WEEK 

 

NOTE: 1 to 8 mm of rain a day, is by Amazon standards considered dry.

The above diagram depicts the rainfall probability for three months. The yellow zone in the North forecasts a probability of about 35 - 40% that the rainfall will be below the historical mean. Therefore there will be a very small chance, if none at all, of high waters during our Nov. to Feb. fishing in the North of Manaus (Dry-Zones N.West and N.East).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dry-Zone N.East RIVERS: KABORI, ITAPARA (see map at the top). Mid-high levels. Water levels have descended and are still a bit high in some fisheries, nevertheless selected zones, e.g. the Omero Lakes and the lower Itapara river are presenting good contidions for peacock bass fishing, which is normal for this time of the season. See chart for Caracaraí below where the blue line represents actual levels, the yellow line last year´s levels and the red line historical extreme water levels.

 

NEXT WEEK 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dry-Zone S.East  :   RIVERS: MARMELOS  (see map at the top). Is closed down for the season ( which is normal for this time of the year). Interestingly this has been the 2nd lowest level in history. Please, note in  the “Rio Madeira” chart below, the blue line represents actual levels, the yellow line represent last year´s levels (the second registered  lowest levels) and, the red line represents the historical lowest level. The blue line, today´s level, is between the last two lowest water levels ever! . And yet, Dry - Zone  N.East are still a bit  high  for fishing . This illustrates de importance of mobility within these 4 distinct Dry Zone areas.

 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Dry-Zone S.West RIVERS: MATUPIRI, IGAPO ACU (see map at the top). Closed down for the season. Water levels are too low and unacceptable for peacock bass fishing which is normal for this time of the year.

Mid-Week Fishing Report:  October 29 - 31, 2016.  (2 1/2 days)

Since most of our Fly-in Floating Cabins are navigating N.West, only one group was received last weekend at the Xeruini private fishery in Dry-Zone N.West, fishing only this 2 1/2 days under very heavy rain episodes with a 332 landed peacock bass mark.

Last week´s fish-count was 3.512 among 37 anglers with two trophies above 20lbs and 365 peacock bass over 10lbs.

Fly-In Floating cabins are navigating to Dry-Zone N.West and are having their scheduled maintenance program when passing by Manaus. Logistics for deployment is being adjusted according the reports of our scouts on the water level situation of the private fisheries.

Mid-Week Fishing Report:  October 22 - 24, 2016.  (2 1/2 days)

In just 2 ½ days only 19 anglers now at private water fisheries in the Xeruini and Jufari rivers fished 951 Peacock Bass (see spreadsheet above). Other anglers at the Matupiri river had lower yields; however,  we are moving their  Fly-in Floating Cabins 500 miles North.

The previous parties landed 3.532 Peacock Bass in 6 days with many trophies over the 19 pounds category

River Plate Anglers social policies as related to the local communities at the Xeruini and Jufaris river are starting to show promising results, having our camps being regularly supplied with fresh native fruits, veggies and free range poultry that our guests enjoy in all their meals.

Hosts report that best performing lures at the current very low water leveles in Dry-Zone S.West are perversas, joao pepino and jigs, and on the Jufari and Xeruini (Dry-Zone N.West) top water props are yielding great results due to our no over-fishing policy.

 Mid-Week Fishing Report: October 15-17, 2016 (2 ½ days, only)

In just 2 ½ days 41 anglers now at our various Fly In Floating Cabins fished 1118 Peacock Bass (see spreadsheet above). These anglers are at our private fisheries on the Matupiri-Igapo-acu Indian Reserves, Jufari and Xeurini rivers on the selected Dry Zones show on the map bellow. 

The previous party landed 3005 Peacock Bass in 6 days with many trophies over the 19 pounds category

We continue to move our Fly-in Floating Cabins over 500 miles from Dry-Zones in the S.West to those in NWest where water levels are rapidly flowing out of the jungle into their optimum levels. Trophy sizes should increase correspondingly (please see Water Level Forecast below).

Hosts report that best performing lures at the current very low water leveles in Dry-Zone S.West are perversas, joao pepino and jigs, and on the Jufari and Xeruini (Dry-Zone N.West) top water props are yielding great results due to our no over-fishing policy.

Mid-Week Fishing Report: October 08-10, 2016 (2 ½ days)

   Mid-Week Fishing Report: October 08-10, 2016 (2 ½ days)

The private water fisheries at the Matupiri and Igapo-Acu in the Indian Reservation (Dry-Zone II – see map below) yielded last week 3.835 peacock bass, with several above the 19lbs mark

This week,  35 anglers in only 2 1/2 days fished  1.022 peacock bass, with 38 above the 10lbs mark and 11 over the 17lbs. category.

The 4 anglers breaking water at the Jufari private water fishery in Dry-Zone III started the week with 155 landed peacock bass with yet no fish over the 17 lbs category; however, water levels are still a bit high but very fishable, and will improve dramatically every day (see water level forecast below). As such, our other Floating Cabins are starting to move into this Zone, since water levels at Zone II, as mentioned, are already at a dangerously low level.

Hosts report that best performing lures at the current very low water leveles in Dry-Zone II are perversas, joao pepino and jigs and, on the Jufari (Dry-Zone III) propellers are working marvels.
